Deletion of files

Hi,

Im a newbie to IS and i use Installshield 2009 professional.

I have a product which uses installshield packaging to install it.

The code written is in program end to end coding. During the uninstallation of the product we have a few self-registered dlls and exes which needs to get deleted. Un-fortunately this does not get deleted both from the hard drive as well as from the registry.

My component table is as below
Shared:Yes
Uninstall:No
Self-Register:Yes
Potentially Locked: Yes

Please do provide me some inputs on this as i am stuck with an incident report of high priority.

Thanks for the help...

Regards
Dominic

Hi Dominic,

The DLLs which are shared, will not be removed during uninstallation. Is there any other application sharing the same DLLs? If you Really want to remove the DLLs, avoid sharing DLLs.

Hello Girimlr

Thanks for the reply.

Yes these DLLS and exes are used by other applications as well.

Is there any other way in which i could remove these shared dlls and exes during the un-installation of the product.

Dominic

Hi,

I suggest not to remove the shared dlls(others may fail to work). If you really need to remove them, change the value of sharecount to 1 before uninstall.
